This concert concludes a fascinating day of presentations, lectures and panel discussions about the national project BOO & international project NS4NA. Have a look at the programme and the possibility to register.

At the end of February, the BOO heritage project comes to an end. We are not going to let this go unchallenged and are planning a real closing event on Friday 25 February 2022 with a special concert at 8 pm: students and teachers of the Classical Music and Jazz department of the KCB will be on stage together and perform compositions and arrangements by Sadi, selected directly from the BOO collection.  

"Fats" Sadi Lallemand (1927-2009) belonged to the so-called golden generation of Belgian jazz musicians, alongside such well-known contemporaries as guitarist Toots Thielemans and saxophonist Bobby Jaspar. As a vibraphonist, he was a regular guest with the various jazz ensembles of the Belgian public broadcasting corporation, in particular the BRT Jazz Orchestra conducted by Etienne Verschueren. For these ensembles Sadi wrote many compositions and arrangements, which will be performed at our closing event for the first time in years. Belgian heritage expressed in a swinging way, a memorable end to a special project!

Covid Safe Ticket?

We hope to welcome you all in a pleasant and safe way. The KCB will therefore be using the Covid Safe Ticket for this event.

Good to know:

  • Prepare your visit now and check out the webpage about the Covid Safe Ticket. This ticket can also be printed.
  • In case you don't obtain a Covid Safe Ticket, you can submit a negative test that has to be valid within the limited hours of sample collection. The hours depend on the type of test that was used. Anyone can obtain such a test from a pharmacist or doctor. See here for more information.
  • Everyone who is part of the audience has to present a valid Covid Safe Ticket or a negative test, they have to keep the mouth mask on during the whole event and respect the social distancing.

Because we hover somewhere between the education and culture sector and are also located in Brussels, it is not easy to map out these guidelines, furthermore the measures can change soon. We will try to inform you as precisely and quickly as possible. 

Thank you for respecting these guidelines, so that we can continue making music.
